Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm running 14.1 and AlienBob's KDE 4.11.3 packages plus multi-lib.
There is small problem on logout, restart, or turn off. I get about ten seconds of black screen before X finally exits, but ctrl,alt, backspace restarts X in about two seconds. This happens for all users.
OK appears to be fixed. I installed an earlier version of the NVIDIA driver.
Gazl added this in another thread
Nvidia added libEGL in the new version of the driver, but only on 32bit. On 64bit you get a warning: something about it being unable to determine the architecture for conflict testing (I would have expected the 'lib64' to be a fairly blatant clue, but whatever...). The driver actually installs, but removes libEGL.la, while leaving mesa's libEGL.so still in-place. What I'm not sure about is whether the appropriate action is to put the .la file back, or to also remove the libEGL.so that belongs to mesa and was left behind. Thankfully, I don't think there's much that actually uses it as yet, so it's not an urgent issue. I expect NVIDIA will get their act together and fix it sooner or later (probably later ).
